Rumor Has It the iPhone 6 Will Look More Like the 5C Than 5S
It’s not exactly news to anyone that Apple is expected to release the new iPhone 6 this year, or even that Apple anticipates offering its classic phone in a new, larger screen size. But here’s something you may not have seen coming: the new, larger-screen iPhone 6 may actually look more like its older cousin the iPhone 5C rather than the iPhone 5S, according to a recent AppleInsider report.
A Japanese blog, Macotakara, published details on Apple’s plans for this year’s lineup of the iPhone6. The blog citied a “trusted source” in saying that the company will be releasing iPhone models sporting 4.7- and 5.7-inch screen sizes, which will likely be launched later this year. Reuters first published news of the new, larger sizes earlier last year.
The new phone design drew inspiration from both last year’s iPhone 5C and the seventh generation iPod nano, according to AppleInsider; the phone, while drawing some of its design from the 5C, will not be a cheaper model, and will not be a replacement for the existing 5C.
